What do you do when you do not know what to do? What do you do when you have prayed every prayer that you know how to pray? What do you do when you think that the lord has forgotten your needs? What happens when the heavens seem closed and all prayers rendered seem unheard? What happens when every door is closed and you want to reach out for the last door and it closes with a big bang? What happens when you have to walk alone, when friends are far and foes are near? What happens when family ties are severed and you feel stark naked? What happens when you think the answer is near but then it is far? What really happens?
Well you and I have probably felt that way before, we have probably found ourselves in this dilemma when there is no one to turn to and God seems far away……far, far, far away. But then when I find myself in such situations, I turn to God because I know he is near even though he seems far. When I want to laugh and all I can do is cry, I know he cares. I turn to God even when I want to sing and all I can do is sob I know he sees, he cares and he knows.
And may I tell the tranquil I find on my knees, when I can pour my heart to God, my grievances, guilt, fears, weaknesses, doubts, disappointments and faults to God. You know I can tell him everything without holding back; after all he knows it all even if I do not tell him and then I leave the place guiltless and free.
So friend, what happens when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere with none to turn to? I implore you to turn to God, to leave all your worries, anxieties, doubts and cares at his feet because he cares more about you. What a friend I have in Jesus, how about you?
